(What's in stores today)
On disc: July's record releases start off in a nostalgic mood, as the week's biggest releases feature three late, lamented stars Jimi Hendrix, reggae master Peter Tosh and Jerry Garcia with the Grateful Dead.
Live at Woodstock (MCA; $21.99 CDs; $13.99 cassette) is a two-CD collection that includes five previously unreleased songs from Jimi Hendrix's festival finale.
Scrolls of the Prophets: The Best of Peter Tosh (Columbia/Legacy; $11.99 CD; $7.99 cassette) is part of the reissue label's rollout of the former Wailer's complete Columbia recordings, which also includes expanded versions of Equal Rights and Legalize It bolstered by rare tracks.
Dick's Picks, Vol. 14 (Grateful Dead; $23.50 CDs only) is the latest and the longest reissue of classic Dead shows. The performances date from 1973 and a three-night stand at the intimate Boston Music Hall in the series' first four-disc set (Orders: (800) 225-3323).
On the classical front, composer John Corigliano's symphonic soundtrack for Francois Girard's The Red Violin (showing at the Esquire Theater) is an evocative and rare treat. On the album (Sony Classical; $17.99), Indiana violinist Joshua Bell performs an extended fantasy for violin with the Philharmonia Orchestra under the superb direction of Esa-Pekka Salonen.
Pinheads: The Reds' Barry Larkin is a Pinhead. So is Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa and other Major League Baseball and World Championship Wrestling stars. Aimed at kids, Pinheads are collectible lapel pins ($2.99) now in stores, including the Wal-Mart on Fields Ertel Road in Symmes Township. Mr. Larkin, alas, is not wearing the new Reds ball cap.
